GAK Graz: 1 Crystal Palace 13: Tony Pulis' men romp their way to 13 goals in pre-season friendly
The Eagles scored eight of their goals in the second half
Thursday 17 July 2014
Crystal Palace started their pre-season off with a bang after scoring 13 (yes, thirteen) goals past GAK Graz in Austria.
Playing against opposition from the Austrian seventh tier, Tony Pulis' men were in ruthless mood and scored five in the first half.
Pulis then made a host of changes with Stephen Dobbie, who spent part of last season on loan at Blackpool, scoring four of Palace's eight goals after the break.
Joe Ledley and Jonny Williams both scored twice, while there were also goals for Yannick Bolasie, Glenn Murray, Jermore Thomas and Marouane Chamakh.
Palace will now travel to the USA for a pre-season tour, playing matches against Columbus Crew, Philadelphia Union and the Richmond Kickers.
They then face Brentford at Griffin Park and Augsburg in Germany before starting their season against Arsenal.
